As we all know, sadly, the holiday season of 2019 has come and gone. We are now into a new year and a new decade. But that doesn’t mean presents aren’t still loved and greatly appreciated. I love presents anytime. 🙂 I received a surprise present in today’s mail, from my friend Karen, in San Diego, CA. It totally made my day. I was feeling a little wiped out after an event that happened at work this morning and was just really kind of in a bit of a funk. It really knocked my socks off. So getting this surprise today really perked me up. My care package from Karen made it all better.
Every year, Larry and I host our annual ornament exchange party to ring in the holidays. Part of Karen’s care package included a fun ornament. NO! This one is for my tree. It is not one for the 2020 exchange! I love my new ornament, but the part of the gift that was just what “the doctor ordered” was a fun little packet of cocktail recipes called “Karen’s Twelve Cocktails of Christmas“. I think I just might need to make one for tonight. Karen knows me well.
The cocktails included in this libatious packet are:
- Christmas Cookie Cocktail
- Poinsettia Cocktail
- Santa’s Sleigh Cocktail
- Champagne Cocktail
- Candy Cane Cocktail
- Hot Spiced Butterscotch Rum Cocktail
- Glacier Cocktail
- Classic Cognac Cocktail
- Holly and Mistletoe Cocktail
- Orange Coffee Cocktail
- Gingerbread Cocktail
- Christmas in a Glass
Don’t these all sound fun? I can’t wait to try them all. I promise I will have tried them all at least once WAY before Christmas comes around again.
My favorite gifts are ALWAYS those that are fun, creative, and made from the heart. This was a perfect gift that I can enjoy anytime of the year. Thank you, thank you, thank you Karen. Love you lots. 🙂
